It's no secret that when it comes to celebrity weddings, the dress takes center stage — especially who designed it. And if there's one bridal fashion house Hollywood's A-list consistently flocks to, it's Vera Wang.
A wedding-industry standard, Vera is known for her luxurious, classically-bridal designs that feature just a hint of edge. It's no wonder celebs adore her aesthetic: It's as dramatic and statement-making as it romantic — a must for highly-publicized affairs.
Two of the Kardashian sisters hired the bridal industry's long-revered designer — Khloe, when she wed Lamar within nine days of getting engaged, and Kim, when she wore not one, not two, but three wedding dresses to marry Kris Humphries. Kaley Cuoco recently walked down the aisle wearing a pink tulle Vera Wang confection for her New Year's Eve nuptials. And even Mariah Carey wore a $25,000 custom-Vera design for her first wedding to first husband Tommy Mattola in 1993.
But it's not just celebrities who love Vera, a few socialites and political children do, too. Ivanka Trump channeled Grace Kelly in a lace-illusion A-line gown for her 2009 nuptials, while Chelsea Clinton stunned in an ultra-glam ruched ball gown in 2010 when she said "I do" to Marc Mezvinsky.

Kim Kardashian's Wedding to Kris Humphries, August 2011
Kim's fairytale wedding to Kris may not have lasted, but her three (yes, three) Vera Wang designs certainly did. For the ceremony, Kimmie donned a frothy ball gown (a major departure from the Givenchy Couture dress she wore for her most recent nuptials). The reality star slipped into a sexier, body-hugging ruffled mermaid and sexy silk sheath for the reception.
Ivanka Trump's Wedding to Jared Kushner, October 2009
The Trump heiress went for regal sophistication at her fall wedding in a gown featuring illusion lace (before its time!) and a graceful A-line skirt. Her simple, Old Hollywood-style waves, diamond earrings, and billowing veil finished off the classic bridal look.
Victoria Beckham's Wedding to David Beckham, July 1999
Although their matching purple dress and suit will forever hold a special place in our hearts, when it came time for Victoria (forever Posh Spice, in our minds) to join hands with Becks, the fashionista went for a statement-making satin ball gown and gold tiara.
Mariah Carey's Wedding to Tommy Mottola, June 1993
The diva is known for her over-the-top antics, so it's not surprising that she went for the drama when she wed her first husband, music exec Tommy Mottola. The oh-so-'90s satin ball gown, which was infamously inspired by Princess Diana's dress, featured puffed-off-the-shoulder sleeves, a beaded bodice, and full skirt. Oh, and it cost a whopping $25,000! Big day, indeed.
